28 April 2019 7:45 p.m. St Machar's Cathedral

As part of the refurbishment of the Cathedral, and with financial support from Aberdeen Bach Choir, the Willis organ has been refurbished and returned to its original configuration. This concert is in part a celebration of the part played by the church organ in 19th and early 20th century religious music, and includes works by a number of significant composers. The programme includes works by Elgar, Howells, Pårt, Parry, Finzi, Ireland and Vaughan Williams. In complete contrast, it will open with the triumphant anthem Zadok the Priest by Handel, arranged for choir and organ. The Choir will be accompanied by David Gerrard, and the concert will also feature two organ solos performed by Dr Roger B Williams, M.B.E., Director of Music and Organist to the Cathedral Church of St Machar, Old Aberdeen.
